Olympia Explorers

Olympia Explorers

For youth ages 8-13 who are interested in spending time outdoors. No experience or skills needed to join - we will teach all the skills they will need to participate in an activity. The group meets every twice a month (once to learn skills and the other is an outing that month).

YOUTH-DRIVEN, ADULT-GUIDED

Explorers is a year-round outdoor adventure program for youth ages 8-13 who want to learn new outdoor skills, and make lasting friendships with fellow adventurers. The program and activities are driven entirely by the participants’ areas of interest. Parents are not required to attend outings but we do encourage parents to join  us. This is a great opportunity for you to get outside with your Explorer! Note: Explorers membership is $250 in total for the year. A $50 deposit is required and the remainder can be paid in full or in monthly installments.

HOW DO OUTINGS WORK?

Outings are organized by our staff and chaperoned by at least two adults. Outings range from single-day hikes, paddles & climbs, to multi-day hiking, climbing or camping trips.  Some trips have a maximum capacity, while others are open to as many youth and adults as want to attend.
